The Colony Meadery, which brews mead at the Bridgeworks manufacturing incubator in Allentown, made a big showing at its first try at a medal at the nation’s biggest industry event.
The meadery won five medals, including one gold, at the Mazer Cup in Boulder, Colo.
It was one of only three meaderies in the nation to receive that many medals, said Greg Heller-LaBelle, co-founder and CEO of Colony Meadery.
The meadery’s Mazer Cup gold was for Mo-Me-Doh, which was the mead that launched the business. Pikwant Field and Frozen Digits took home bronze; A Good Sarsaparilla and Beso Exotico won silver.
While this is the largest competition, The Colony Meadery has won national awards in other, smaller competitions. The latest honors bring the meadery’s total national medal count to 13.
